Netflix is jumping on the reality bandwagon with its upcoming release of Dating Around. The first dating Original by Netflix, we can expect the series to garner a huge audience when the series debuts soon. Taking a more honest approach to dating, love, and relationships Dating Around could be the not so surprise package for Originals in February. Here’s everything we know so far on Netflix Original Dating Around.
What is Dating Around?
Dating Around is Netflix’s first attempt at a dating show. Reality television has exploded in popularity over the past decade with many different genres popping up. While the demand for reality TV is arguably at its current peak, dating shows have been popular for far longer. Such shows like the Bachelor/Bachelorette, Are You the One? and the UK’s Undateables and Naked Attraction have been immensely popular since their inception. Really it shouldn’t come as a surprise that Netflix would eventually throw their hat into the ring to get a piece of the reality dating action.
The official synopsis for Dating Around from the Netflix website is as follows;
Every episode, one single goes on five first dates filled with flirty banter, awkward exchanges and moments of true connection. Who will get a second date? Netflix’s first original dating show takes an honest and compelling look at the real world of dating.
Compared to other reality dating shows, Dating Around certainly gives off a different vibe. Rather than aiming for shallow comedy or a game show feel, those that are taking part in the show appear to be far more genuine than what most audiences will be used to. A more heartwarming and gentler approach to dating may help Dating Around stand out amongst the crowd. If Netflix strikes the right chord then Dating Around could become an instant hit for the streaming service.
